<b><i>A serial killer in Japan is chopping off heads. An unlikely pair of journalists try not to lose theirs.</i></b>
Being a photographer at a Tokyo newspaper is no walk in the park—unless you’re Akio Tsukino and only get assigned to shoot parades and park festivals. All that changes when a serial killer starts chopping off heads in nearby Kofu. Akio maneuvers his way onto the assignment in order to prove himself and get closer to enigmatic staff writer Masami Sato.
When the investigation takes a supernatural turn, the unlikely partners find themselves caught between solving the mystery and saving their own lives.
In this thrilling and imaginative debut by Tristram Lowe, getting the story may cost them their heads.

Fun, Fascinating Genre-Bender!
Headless is not what you might think it is. It manages to meld elements of crime procedurals, buddy commedies, horror, thrillers, and historical fiction. I loved the juxtaposition of modern Japanese locales with historical fiction and mythology. The mystery and sharp writing will keep you turning the pages, and along the way the author gives you countless interesting little details and reflections that will stick with you long after your first read. Highly recommended!
